    Hi, I'm a mechatronics and robotics student. What is the purpuse of studying biomechanics? Is for humanoid robots or for prosthetics? If for prosthetics why doing it a a college who is not of bioengineering or of medicine?

    Welcome to PF, Sterproj.
    I don't know about your last question. The answer to the previous one is 'both', and some more besides. There are also things like leg braces, new types of shoes, medical implants, protective gear for athletes, etc..
